Alongside hybrids and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are set to be an important part of decarbonising transport and getting to net zero – with companies like Hyundai, Toyota and Honda already investing in this technology.
Hydrogen and battery electric vehicles are often seen as separate to each other, but what many people don’t realise is that batteries are vital for FCEVs too.
That’s because FCEVs need batteries to act as a buffer between the fuel cell system and the electric motor. Hydrogen fuel cells are most efficient (and use the least amount of hydrogen) when they run at a constant rate, but vehicles have to be able to vary their speed.
